“You must be mad” was one of the several comments made when ‘Jono’ – Jonathan Blount – announced he was starting a motorcycle/bike business in Nottinghamshire. He knew many trials riders who also enjoyed mountain biking and who would be potential customers. His years spent working at a major bike-hut retailer had given him a good grounding into the service and repair work needed, and he planned to keep away from the cheap range of products that occupied many service bays and instead offer warranty work and concentrate on value for money bikes that could be upgraded and used in anger. His thirteen years of motorcycle trialing, mostly on Sherco machines, had given him the background for his own retailing project. His management training with Enterprise Car Hire was to come in useful, with both computer programs and customer relations!
